BREAKFAST The Get Ahead Cook – Chorizo Hash Recipe from Jane Lovett

The Get Ahead Cook by Jane Lovett | Chorizo Hash

From Jane Lovett’s cookbook The Get-Ahead Cook published by Apicius. This dish, Janes says, ‘is a little bit spicy, very comforting, all in one pan and an excellent way of using up leftover potatoes. Good for brunch, lunch or supper and perfect for the morning after the night before! All quantities are approximate, so use more or less according to who you’re feeding and what you have to hand’.

The Get-Ahead Cook | Slow-braised Beef Short Ribs

‘This flavourful meat is cooked slowly until succulent and falling off the bone into its dark, deeply rich sauce’, Jane Lovett says in her new book The Get-Ahead Cook. ‘Serve with creamy mashed potatoes and earthy vegetables, such as cabbage, chard, kale, celeriac purée or leeks in white sauce. This is best started at least a day before eating.’

BAKING Cake Tips

How to Make Your Cake Baking Foolproof

We all have disasters when we are baking cakes – that’s how we learn to bake. There are a few tips and tricks to reduce the number of times that things go wrong from reading the recipe first (obvious but critical) to not combining metric and Imperial and cup measures. Here’s our hard-won advice.

DESSERTS Boozy Cherries

Boozy Cherries

Cherries were once a rare treat but now they have become more affordable when they are in season. Buy a few punnets at a time and make our boozy cherries to eat for dessert with Greek yogurt or serve them as part of a cheese board with a runny piece of Brie de Meaux which is in season at the same time. Our boozy cherries last for 2 weeks if you store them in a sealed container in the fridge.

APPETISERS Chickpea and Lentil Soup

Chickpea and Lentil Soup

A soup that lends itself to using what’s in the storercupboard and the fridge. You’ll find how to adapt this Italian soup to make a middle-eastern chickpea and lentil soup at the end of the recipe. Use any type of lentils from Puy to the black Beluga lentil to the brown POD lentils from Castelluccio di Norcia.

DESSERTS Caramel and Chocolate Sauce

A Rich Velvety Caramel and Chocolate Sauce

Is this the most delicious sauce in the world to pour over icecream? It’s up there with the best. Make it in advance and store it in a kilner jar or empty Bonne Maman jar in the fridge ready to cheer you up when you need a sugar hit. Spread it on sourdough toast, drizzle it over warm buttermilk pancakes or waffles, spoon it over thick Greek yogurt or sour cream or layer it between a Victoria sponge with fresh cream or buttercream. You could just eat it by the spoonful from the jar and lick the spoon clean.
